Candyland was launched in 1932 under the name “Flavocorn” on Wabasha Street in downtown St. Paul. The Lambs purchased the business in 1981 and have expanded it, opening two Minneapolis locations and the Stillwater store.The Lambs are locals to the Valley and saw the opportunity to open their fourthth store on North Main Street.

Candyland also offers products and services geared toward businesses, parties and weddings. Their popcorn tins, bulk purchase and packaging options offer buyers many ways to purchase their products.
